I have this curious problem with a few workstations.

Just like many others, we add a machine entry in our smbpasswd file
(samba PDC of course), and then tell the workstation to join the
domain. The workstation then says 'Welcome..' and all looks happy.

It then reboots, and people from the new domain try and log in but
it complains that the computer account for the domain is incorrect.

I dont know how to approach this problem.
saying it has a bad passwd entry for that domain, and then correctly
authenticate the next try.

This problem is in the minority, most machines seem to be ok, but
its an annoying minority.

Should I check things like time differences between machines? bad
I dont know how to approach this problem or what to look for. Names
and uids are unique.

NT names?

Not using the most recent cvs release yet, only for the test server,
which seems to work ok. Using a cvs release of 3/3/99 or maybe a day

Any help much appreciated.
